 Introduction

The records of the International Association of Machinists, District 57, were donated to the Center for Archival Collections in December, 1978. The collection consists of twenty-eight and one-third linear feet of meeting minutes, correspondence, financial records, labor agreements, National Labor Relations Board Cases, grievances, convention materials, brochures, and minutes of committees which the District 57 business agent attended. Records extend from 1892-1974, but the majority of the material documents the years 1892-1916 and 1926-1966. Literary and property rights have been dedicated to the public and duplication is permitted for the purposes of preservation and scholarly research. Joanne Passet, a graduate assistant employed by the Ohio Labor History Project, processed the collection.

The International Association of Machinists, District 57, chartered in November, 1906, currently consists of Lodge 105, chartered in July, 1890, and Lodge 1942, chartered on May 1, 1906.

District 57 negotiates with thirty-six companies in and around Toledo, including the American Shipbuilding Company, Libbey Glass, Pilliod Cabinet (in Swanton), the Wonder Bread Company, and several major truck lines. Among the more noted strikes occurring during District 57's history are the 1975 strike against the Burndy Corporation, a manufacturer of aerospace components and computer parts, and the American Shipbuilding Strike of 1978. District 57's offices are located at 4130 Lewis Avenue, Toledo, Ohio, 43612.
